Juice Drops | Digital Underground Vol. 420 Mixed by DJ Chronic

From the get go, the use of the number 420 is no mistake.  As noted on his Soundcloud, it would be Volume #4, but…and speaking of Butts, the cover goes hand in hand with the chronic, and not that you need it to enjoy the show, but it doesn’t hurt.  How fitting as we get into the Miami boom boom season.  So into the music Yo!

On the intro some cool Egyptian Lover business helps you take out your papers, and before you think, wait that’s old school, well yes it is, but it’s an edit b/w of Florida’s Phat Kidz, so, dope it is.  After the smoke clears, DJ Chronic drops you right into some serious broken beat business B/W of Mafia Kiss, DJ Hero and Mutantbreakz, which also includes the first Juice Drop.

I’ve always enjoyed Mafia Kiss and this edit ironically is one he did for a contest I also entered, but did not win;(  But it’s funny how things go round as I later had the pleasure of supporting him on an NYC date for Vitamin B, as well as doing several remixes on Diablo Loco Records, and he didn’t give me any fish wrapped in paper.

Rolling into the middle of this green, after a little transition from the intro bangers, get ready for some big synths & heavy drivers including some hot work from Funklab, Hate N Beanz & Mc Twist.  If that isn’t enough, DJ Chronic keeps puffing away with fresh joints from Bella, Agent K and Gusto Labs.  I really enjoy Bella’s no holds barred 808 booty call basswork, and this section leading into Agent K’s flip and some of  Gustolabs best work, make the highlight section of the DJ mix for me.

Exiting the middle, get ready for some aggressive beats and baselines, with hints of the Tear out days gone by…  Shockillaz ain’t joking around and then you get served up a nice mix of old school and new school bombs from Agent K, Fixx and Breaksmafia.  Bringing you to the end is a stinger from Rick Tedesco b/w of a nifty Headset Heroes remix.  I’ve done some work with those fellas, and aside from being a pleasure to work with, they bang the box, and this one is no exception…and how cool is their name?

Well done DJ Chronic…after all is said in done, thanks for a fun mix, and my parting thoughts to you or anyone listening…you definitely need to visit the Cheeba Hut in San Diego and get a tasty nug and goo ball.  GO!

Juice Drops | Coast To Coast by DJ Rockit & Orkid

Big ups to Rockit and Orkid for a couple Juice Drops on this bass heavy Monkey Tennis Group breaks mix.  Kicking off with a few massive bassline heavies…make sure you have some 18’s for this sesh.  This thing rolls out a flurry of massive bass, breaks and electro rhythms like you’d expect to hear as the background tracks for a hamster driving a Kia.

Around 10, there’s some solid turntablist flava going down…then get ready for an electro bass assortment like that 50 flavor jelly belly mix.  Roll with that for 30 minutes into a darker space and if your head isn’t nodding check yo pulse.  I’m not going to lie, this one gets heavy in a good electro sort of way…if that’s your vibe stay tight, otherwise roll to about the 40:00 mark for some more DMC level wiki wiki and get ready for a breakbeat funk fest.

Orkid comes in around the 1:00 mark and kicks into some hands in the air business with trance undertones.  Around 1:12:00 comes the Juice Drop b/w of Feel The Break (Wes Smith’s Dirty Juice Remix) a jam I did for my pals MutantBreakz on Lady Waks InBeatWeTrust (IBWT) imprint out of Russia.  Funny how things sound so much different when you haven’t been listening to it 465 times.  Love this one.

After this Orkid takes the mix back in that 808 direction.  Lots of vocals on a several mix segue way get us into some Dirty Birds/Punks feeling rhythms.  Don’t get to comfy, in short order she’s back on that bass line grind with some half tempo sections and big EDM/Trap/Twerk level shit that will flex your Cerwin Vegas straight through the car wash.  BrokeAsFCK meter = 8/10.

Juice Drops | Funky Flavor Presents “This is Breakbeat vol 27” by DJ Funky Junky

I recently caught up with DJ Funky Junkie out of Orlando, FL for a little bi-coastal rap session…After a bit of chat on our respective Orlando and San Diego scenes he forward me this hot breaks mix of edgy gems.  This banger kicks off on the B-Boy booty bass tip, rolls into some funk gems (including one of my own favorite remixes) and then graduates into some heavier beats and bass lines with loads of vocal flava and a couple throwback feeling choons for good measure.

The Juice Drops are:

4. Hate N Beanz – Watchu Got (Wes Smith’s Califunkya Remix) 

6. The Juice Squad & Wes Smith Feat. Big Wiggles – Bomb Diggy Diggy (Dubaxface Remix)
